Mysterious Mole and Old Croc

Tales from the Bush Mob is a series of books about the Bush Mob, a group of animals who work together to solve problems. Each book shares a rich landscape of characters and places, including Dingo, Willy-willy Wagtail, Eagle, Platypus, Koala, Wombat, Kookaburra, Echidna and Kangaroo. These stories emphasise the value of respect for First Nations culture and country, as well as the importance of courage, perseverance and wisdom to bind communities together.

In this fifth book, you will meet Molly Mole and Old Croc who strike up an unlikely friendship. Molly Mole is allergic to dust and Old Croc is afraid of the dark, but when they join forces they discover they are stronger together. When one of their plans has unintended consequences it’s up to the Bush Mob to help make things right.

Filled with gorgeous illustrations of Australian animals and exciting tales, this will be a popular book for the whole family.
